Default FINALLY got a chance to go snapper fishing

Pretty slow day and Im still looking for some better stuff around Navarre but the fish at 26.5" was a hell of a way to break my first legal red snapper cherry in my yak.

Thanks fellas. Ever since the start of the season Ive been down with bad weather and then my bottom machine went out. Got a new one and calm seas and fish in the box. Cant complain.

I did learn something pretty valuable after something big broke me. In the yak, keep the rod parallel with the boat as much as possible when fighting big bottom fish. While fighting kings and stuff I can comfortably fight them with my rod in any position and not feel tippy. However if your rod is perpendicular with the boat and big bottom bruiser smashes your bait, well honestly that was the first time in my yaking experience that I thought I was going to lose it in open water.

Nice fish man. Good advice also, I have not had a chance to get any good bottom fish yet and I was wondering about the difference in the fight on the kayak.
